The Get OutChallenge was inspired by a hilarious scene from the 2017 comedy horror movie. The scene features Walter (Marcus Henderson), the groundskeeper running full speed towards Chris (Daniel Kaluuya). At the last second, Walter makes a sharp turn. Scroll to the gif below to see the unforgettable scene.
Chris steps outside to try to smoke a cigarette. He’s being discrete because Rose’s (Allison Williams) father Dean (Bradley Whitford) doesn’t want his daughter dating a smoker. Suddenly, Walter is coming at him full force. Social media’s reaction to the scene has been hilarious. The Get Out Challenge features people reenacting the scene.
What Is The Get Out Challenge?
2017 has been the year of social media challenges. The Soulja Boy Challenge and Stay Alive Challenge are two of my favorites. The video at the end of this article shows some hilarious Get Out Challenge submission videos.
We are all big kids. A majority of the people I’ve seen submit videos have been 25+. There’s nothing like reenacting a funny scene from a movie. This challenge should come with a disclaimer. While we love the fact it’s making people run, you can hurt yourself if your timing isn’t accurate.
